The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Madcap federal election predictions...

I suspect that the next federal election will take place in October of 2004.

With Paul Martin as Liberal leader...
Liberals - 187
Alliance - 53
Bloc - 25
NDP - 23
Tories - 20

You will notice that this adds up to 308, which is how many seats there will be in the next Parliament.
Federal Representation 2004 information can be found here.

If Chr├ętien manages to hang on, somehow...

Liberals - 160
Alliance - 63
Bloc - 34
NDP - 25
Tories - 26

Of course, how the new boundaries are drawn could affect things a few seats either way.

I may actually explain my predictions in the near future. I'm just putting these predictions up in the spirit of the political silly season, when most of the action is taking place on the barbecue circuit. They're also there so that I can say "boy, was I ever wrong" after the next federal election. I must be a masochist, or an egotist. Take your pick.
